Davenport, Iowa – February 20, 2019 – Midland Information Resources Company (dba Elanders Americas) of Davenport, Iowa has been awarded the Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) designation, Best of the Best and Safety Shield, to recognize exemplary human resources practices that create an outstanding workplace. For nearly 20 years, Printing Industries of America’s BWA program has acted as an acknowledgment of printing industry excellence in human resources practices.
Being designated a Best of the Best and Safety Shield company demonstrates the significant commitment that Midland Information Resources has made to its employees by investing in their work environment, their personal goals and ambitions, and recognizing that an exceptional workplace also serves the needs of the company.
A panel of respected human relations professionals from the print industry judged entrants against benchmarking categories that promote the most sought-after qualities of today’s workforce, including: Communication & Culture, Employee Resources & Benefits, and Work Environment & Safety. Those awarded a Safety Shield designation were evaluated on OSHA compliance and best safety practices for the printing industry.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the industry as a company that offers a superior workplace,” said Kelly Green, Human Resource Manager. “Receiving the honor of being both a Best of the Best company and a Safety Shield recipient demonstrates our firm policy of conducting business in a socially responsible and ethical manner.
